El salto del ángel

Lo llamado normal

Por: | 20 de junio de 2012


Christopher_Orr,_Circle,_2006No siempre resulta atractivo ser calificado como normal. No hay duda de que puede valorarse frente a determinadas alternativas, pero resulta inquietante el uso que hacemos del término. En ocasiones nos amparamos en él y nos arropamos en el abrigo que nos procura. Quizás en este sentido hemos de comprender lo que tiene de denuncia el libro de Janette Winterson, “¿Por  qué ser feliz cuando se puede ser normal?” (Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal?). Nos encontramos con una pregunta rigurosa, no exenta de ironía, que más bien ofrece el texto de una denuncia, de una búsqueda, de una lucha, de una dura experiencia, la de labrar la propia vida en circunstancias difíciles. A veces se logra siquiera que sea un relato de ficción para sobrevivir y no ser condenado a los dictados estandarizados. No es una huída, ni un simple refugio. Es simplemente una posibilidad.

Y lo es frente a quienes desean “normalizar” las vidas ajenas y reducirlas a lo que se ofrece del modo más convencional. El título no es en este caso ninguna rendición, sino una transgresión que pone en cuestión lo que con demasiada ligereza llamamos “normal”. Y esta palabra no solo ha de ser descrita, merece prácticamente ser desenmascarada. Ante lo llamado normal se erige la voluntad de no ser sometido permanentemente al examen y a los intereses ajenos. Se precisa una tarea conjunta de recelo, de sospecha, sobre el supuesto atractivo de la normalidad.

Resulta asimismo sugerente el título de la obra en la que Canguilhem muestra hasta qué punto el término funciona como un elemento de clasificación y de exclusión. En Lo normal y lo patológico se incide en los límites de una racionalidad que expulsa de sí y califica de enfermizo y digno de tratamiento aquello que no se deja recoger y domesticar en este concepto, más aún, en la lectura dominante del mismo. Así planteado, resulta difícil no saberse normal sin sentir una verdadera amputación de los sentimientos, de los deseos, de las emociones, de las pasiones, en definitiva, de los proyectos de vida y de la vida misma. De no ser de acuerdo con esa tipificación que vincula un concepto de razón a una determinada “normalidad”, uno se haría “digno de terapia”, “de cura”.

Encontramos normal lo que es habitual o corriente, lo que responde a usos y costumbres, lo que calificamos de natural, de sano sentido común, lo que estadísticamente es frecuente, lo que, como decimos, “siempre se ha hecho así”, “siempre ha sido así”. Al supeditarnos a esa propuesta norma, este concepto produce finalmente, como es “lógico”, “gente de lo más normal”. La interiorización cobra tal alcance, que ya no es necesario mucho más para encauzar, embridar y acomodar la propia vida a lo que impera como “razonable”, que identificamos inapropiadamente como “socialmente aceptado”. La palabra queda así encerrada en un sentido preciso pero desajustado, y nace también todo un lenguaje silenciado. Más aún, que funciona como un elemento disuasorio de otras experiencias o formas de vida que, entonces, consideramos poco normales. Se califican prácticamente como una sin-razón, que merece alguna suerte más o menos explícita de internamiento o de exilio, con las correspondientes dosis de aislamiento. Se disocia la propia vida del lenguaje y sobre ciertos asuntos se pide callar. Es lo normal.

Christopher_orr,_before_and_afterHemos tenido ocasión con René Char de reivindicar la necesidad de desarrollar la legítima rareza, que no tanto se opone a lo normal, cuanto que pone en evidencia , incluso en ridículo, la insuficiencia de un término que se esgrime como arma de poder controlador de conciencias y de vidas mediante procesos de regulación y de simplificación. Bien lo dicen los encargados de fijar posiciones: “esto no es normal”.

La puesta en cuestión de la autoestima, cuando aquello que se puede o se decide vivir no responde a lo preestablecido como adecuado comporta dosis de marginación personal y tal vez paralice la acción. Salvo que la energía y la convicción se sobrepongan e impongan sobre lo convencionalmente asentado. Esto no significa que no quepa reconocer la necesidad de hábitos, usos, costumbres y necesidades que impulsan y cuajan la libertad, pero que pueda llegar a ser así no significa que inexorablemente haya de ser siempre de ese modo.

No pocas veces utilizamos el término “normal” para neutralizar iniciativas, posiciones y vidas, y encauzarlas interesadamente hacia modelos previamente establecidos con carácter social dominante. Ello no significa que no se den actitudes que hayamos de evitar, o dolores y sufrimientos producidos por una determinada disgregación o desagregación de uno mismo que debamos eludir, lo que es otro asunto. Para eso no hemos de desechar maneras de ser o de vivir que cuestionen lo que se propone como referencia normal.

También resulta inquietante la tendencia a apagar lo que en cada uno de nosotros no se deja reducir a modos que son moldes que marcan la identidad y la identificación, para poner a buen recaudo la diferencia o la respuesta en la que consiste la impugnación. No siempre necesitamos que sean otros quienes nos obstaculicen, nos impidan, nos contengan o nos retengan. Nuestra propia subjetividad funciona, no pocas veces, como una manera de restablecer, frente a los diversos modos de subjetivación, el imperio dominante de los valores al uso. Y no es que nos moleste ser normales, en el supuesto de que eso diga algo razonable, salvo porque consideramos no merecer quedar atrapados en el corsé normalizador.

De ahí que gestos como los de Winterson no solo son muestras de supervivencia, sino alientos que cuestionan un concepto de felicidad que se impone como coartada paralizante ante los riesgos de otras formas de vida. Entonces, llegados a este punto, no se trata de ser feliz de cualquier manera, es decir, a cualquier precio. Tal vez baste con estar razonablemente contentos. Y ser más libres.

Finally (again-sorry), I have no need, from now on to involve individuals per se in terms of email recipients; just individuals in institutions that I consider are of interest to me; with the emails that I have sent carefully targeting individuals belong to institutions of relevance for me, I have been able to draw attention to the blog I mentioned that comes out of Spain; it is not my blog but I use the commentary section with, I assume, the tacit permission of the owners of the newspaper it belongs to. But yes, I will still very likely need to send emails in the manner that I have but I do not need to do it massively, but only to specific individuals for I am already established as a voice and my power is my writing and my ideas-I also belong to a "humanist elite" (I mention this concept in a post on the commentary section of the blog). And my aim is to share what I am and the way I live, with as many people as I can. But I obey the law as you can tell from the way I do things; but more than law, I believe in MORALITY, the having of a MORAL vision of life. And perhaps the first thing you need in this sense, is to be able to judge, for yourself, what is right and wrong. And there are a lot of things I see as WRONG-and some of them ARE LEGAL, according to law in a traditional sense. For example, what could exactly be at issue here is the problem with the GEOGRAPHICAL GROUNDING OF LAW ITSELF; I write form the US but all my ideas are made public in Spain. If you are offended by what I write, how do you prosecute me? Under what jusridiction? But the most revolting thing I deal with, as another example, is when BECAUSE OF THE LAW, INSTITUTIONS DO NOT HELP OTHER PEOPLE, INSTITUTIONS SHIELD THEMSELVES IN THE LAW VERY FREQUENTLY; and the consequence often is that people continue suffering. What should I think, then, of the law in those circumstances?
Well, read me and you will know!
Or forget me as spam.
But take me to court and you will KNOW VERY FAST; but do it according to the law-and also to MORAL COHERENCE, because if you don't I WILL EXPLOIT THAT MERCILESSLY IN A PUBLIC FORUM AND IN A COURT OF LAW, ANY COURT OF YOUR CHOICE!
REGARDS,

Sorry again to come back to you so soon. I was just going over the idea jurisdiction in any crime I could be accused off, and given that most emails include addresses from all over the world and EVERY SINGLE ONE HAS BEEN COPIEd TO THE FBI IN DC, I don't understand how the law of Maryland could really matter at all; rather this seems to me to be more of a Federal thing and in fact, beyond that. The IPC is in maryland, of course, but I don't really see how that could matter given what I have said regarding addresses and also because of the things I deal with go way beyond any geographic area AND ARE A WHOLE LOT MORE IMPORTANT THAN THIS STATE. From the people I have most seriously offended BECAUSE OF THE MORAL INDICTMENT I MAKE, there seems to have been no response. I just would not want to see a problem that is in all ways a matter of much greater importance than the feelings of local business in Montgomery county, "BILLY CLUBBED DOWN" by locals at the service, probably, of greater and more removed levels of power. But of course I am not a lawyer in regards to knowing the law; I am however in the use of logic and presenting arguments of persuasion. As I perceive things, we are before a situation that is QUITE CLEARLY FEDERAL AND BEYOND, but that "the powers that be" would prefer to have this stopped in a local context or because of the basically petty arrogance of Bethesda, local. Why have I not been stopped already at a much higher level; and who is actually putting pressure on you-and where is THAT PRESSURE actually originating?
But what me makes me different from all that is the fact that I give ABSOLUTELY NO IMPORTANCE TO POWER AS UNDERSTOOD THROUGH MONEY! I need to eat and smoke. All the rest in life that is of real importance, has nothing to do with money. But yes, what money can buy is very important, I do not deny that. But I don't live and work FOR IT, LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE.
This is a serious difference. And yes, it makes me much more frightening.

Sólo voy a hacer 3 cosas al respecto:


1. Pedir disculpas a las personas que se han quejado.


2. Gracias por el entrenamiento.


3. Me daré de baja de Internet y aprovecharé para tirar el Ordenador por la ventana.


Si quieren que haga algo más, útil y no violento, sólo tienen que decírmelo.
No me cae mal nadie de su equipo.
Para mí ha sido una experiencia más de la vida.
No voy a tomar ninguna medida legal si nadie me obliga.
Pero en una cárcel tan horrible como la de "Down the Law" no piensen en encerrarme porque no voy a a ir.

Upon further reading of your words, I come to the possible conclusion that our exchange has been nothing more than a softly spoken warning not to send anymore emals on your part. Is that a correct interpretation?
Regarding the attachment you say you sent, I YOU DIDN'T. And I hope this is a mistake on your part, that it slipped your mind or something -it happens to me! So please send (or resend) what I assume is the MD penal code or some part of it; or better yet, just give me the articles of the penal code and I'll get the information myself-that is what lawyers do, isn't it?
I am liking you less and less. And I assumed that you would have some kind of interest in understanding me; I feel that that was a misjudgment on my part. After all that I have done through my emails, the commentary section of a blog and months of writing on that blog and several months worth of texts prior to the last blog article of February, you actually think that I am just going to crumple at what appears to be a "decent and authoritative" way of saying SHUT YOUR GOD DAMN PIE HOLE!
I DO WHAT I FEEL I HAVE TO DO.
SO YEAH, WE ME BE MEETING SOONER THAN YOU THOUGHT (IF YOU REALLY THOUGHT THAT!)
SEE THE PROBLEM WITH NOT BEING UP FRONT: I LOSE RESPECT FOR YOUUUU!
See ya pal

And the first thing you will have to distinguish about me is the question of being Spam, that if you don't want to read what I wright, you OBVIOUSLY don't have to. How, in this way, am I NOT a spammer? Well the main point (and here is your difficulty) is that what I say about life, society and specially "Texas", is DEVASTATINGLY ACCURATE, but CERTAINLY NOT PLEASANT. It is true that I exaggerate in a certain way, but this is to make a point, clearly not intended to intimidate or threaten. AND I HAVE NEVER MADE A PERSONAL THREAT, THOUGH I HAVE CONTEMPLATED THROUGH MY WORDS THIS IDEA: THAT IF THE LAW IS NOT OPEN TO THE VOICE OF PEOPLE (THINK IF YOU WILL IN THE EXPERIENCE OF BLACKS IN THE US) VIOLENCE IS CERTAINLY THE ONLY ANSWER-AND EVERYBODY, DEEP DOWN CAN SEE THIS A LOGICAL. HOWEVER, EVERYBODY ALSO UNDERSTANDS THAT THIS IS CLEARLY NOT THE WAY TO GO. REGARDING THE UNABOMBER, I HAVE ALREADY IN GREAT DETAIL, DISTINGUISHED MY SELF FORM HIS ACTS AND ESPECIALLY FORM HIS INTELLECTUAL CONTRADICTIONS, THAT ARE CERTAINLY NOT MINE.
I HAVE NO PROBLEM IN SPEAKING WITH YOU OR ANYBODY ELSE, BUT I WILL NOT BE "BILLY CLUBED" AROUND OR INTIMIDATED. I UNDERSTAND VIOLENCE AND POWER, AND WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND ME THROUGH WHAT I WRITE, YOU WILL ALSO UNDERSTAND HOW I VIEW THE LAW, COURT SYSTEM AND EVEN THE CONCEPT OF DEMOCRACY.
BUT IN THE MEANTIME, I AM JUST A SPAMMER, NO?
DON'T READ MEEEE!

That is a beginning.. However, threatening/harassing emails are addressed in the Maryland Criminal code. I was hoping we were going to work this out. The telephone number you provided – I tried – but no answer. I want to assure you that this is not a matter to be taken lightly. You have frightened an assortment of people and besides the criminal potential- no one should make another afraid. I am asking you to take my emails seriously. Please communicate clearly on how you wish me to proceed. The choice is yours and consequently so are the positive/negative ramifications to your choice. I sincerely wish to settle this matter in a win/win manner for everyone involved. Thank you for the time you have taken to respond to my communications and I eagerly await your decision. If you have an alternate plan that I may have overlooked- please communicate the plan .. Thanks, Ken

I thank you for your words of support, but I must point out something that unfortunately for you is on record: YOU CAME TO ME WITH FALSE PRETENSE WHEN YOU SAID YOU WERE CONCERNED WITH MY WELL BEING, WHICH LATER CHANGED TO THE REAL REASON FOR YOUR CONTACTING ME, AND THAT IS YOU ARE BEING PRESSURED TO ACT AGAINST ME (BY WHOEVER). AND THIS IS NOT CORRECT, IN FACT YOU ARE HARASSING ME, ACTUALLY.
BUT AGAIN I THINK YOU FOR YOUR WORDS. BUT I DO NOT APPRECIATE FALSE PRETENSE.
AND WHEN YOU IMPLY THAT YOU KNOW MORE ABOUT THE LAW, I SINCERELY DOUBT THAT OTHERWISE YOU WOULD NEVER HAVE GONE ON RECORD LIKE YOU HAVE IN THE WAY YOU HAVE.

MY OPINION IS THAT THIS IS NOT A "POLICE" MATTER, ALTHOUGH THERE MAY BE LEGAL ISSUE IN QUESTION. AND THAT IS MY POINT: I WANT TO BE IN COURT TO CHANGE THEM.

THE UNDERLYING PSYCHOLOGICAL PROBLEM OF MAN
His body. Regarding physical space, only one human body can occupy it at a time. And this ties directly into the individual's need for comfort; bodily and then successively more abstract, on higher levels. And it is clear then, that Man naturally lives-necessarily and always-in conflict with other individuals, ALL THE TIME. You can be polite respectful and wait your turn; or you can also KILL, impose yourself on others as a way of getting what you need and want. This is you baby, in your psychological life-mode and collective human groups-society- is a BITCH in this sense. And when this goes away, people as individuals die (and life is NOT WORTH LIVING-clearly I am talking about a personal problem that I deal with-the value of life itself-YOUR LIFE, AND OUR LIVES). And I have seen the lack of regard for others in all kinds of situations-to the point that if you are polite and "politically correct" in certain circumstances, YOU WILL BE TAKEN DOWN BY OTHERS, BY A PACK OF ENRAGED AND FEARFUL MONKEYS. And I certainly know that there are times when you have no choice BUT TO STOP COLD INDIVIDUALS AND GROUPS ANYWAY YOU CAN FOR THEY WILL TAKE A NICE PLEASANT CRAP (FOR THEM) ON YOU OR ANYTHING THAT IS IMPORTANT TO YOU. And this I know, as contemplation and as personal experience! This is the nature of people. So stop kidding yourself about DEMOCRACY; we have reached a point and circumstances where there should be no consideration for the "petty monkey crap" of callously frivolous individuals and their drive for comfort at all costs! And people need to understand this, intellectualize it, and live accordingly with INTRINSIC RESPECT for others, not respect imposed by the law or social convention.
YOU CAN GO TAKE A CRAP ON YOUR DEAD MOTHER!

HUMOR UNDER THE ROCK OF THE CHRIST MECHANISM
texasloveschildren@yahoo.com
"Dime de lo que presumes y te dire de lo que careces" goes the expression in Spanish, meaning that that which you must state about yourself reflects a very probable insecurity in yourself and hence the need to make sure others see you as not lacking what you very well might, deep in your heart or in some sinisterly subtle manner and that you are aware of (hence your insecurity!)
info@bethesdacares.org
When you have a charity organization coming out of Bethesda (in Montgomery County, MD; one of the wealthiest counties in the US), and it needs to attempt to affirm that it does indeed care, you now understand that in some way it doesn't, or that in the minds of the people who came up with the name, there is a subtle internal insecurity about that very idea, that "we as Bethesdians ACTUALLY DO NOT CARE" and therefore they have to SAY IT, to try to get others to EXTRINSICALLY provide them with what viscerally they KNOW is lacking!
A FEW JOKES ENJOYED BY THE HOMELESS AT info@bethesdacares.org
-"BETHESDADOESN'TCARE"
-"BETHESDADOESN'TCARE after 5pm" [office closes at 5 everyday]
-"on the weekends, BETHESDACARES doesn't give a shit!" [there are no office hours on Saturday and Sundays; no coffee or rolls, no opportunity to be with others for breakfast and for many people, no human contact WHATSOEVER for 64 Earth hours (from 5pm Friday, to 9AM Monday); and imagine 64 hours in January and February -talk to Richard and Dean about that, for example!]
-"BethesdaCares only enough to provide one meal a day; BethesdaCares doesn't care about dinner for you" [Churches in Bethesda form a net work where on different days of the week, different churches provide a lunch (it's big and hot) at 12:30, and sometimes you are given sandwiches to take for dinner. BUT SOME TIMES THERE AREN'T ANY AT ALLLLLLL! And that is when you say:
"BethesdaCares doesn't give a damn!; Fuck BethesdaCares!"
-"BethesdaCares doesn't care until 9AM" [When you live on the street and sleep on the street, or in your car, you are always up at around 4, even if you finally go to sleep at 12AM or 1AM; so you have 5 hours before you without warmth, coffee or anybody to talk to or even to sit with, be with-even if you don't talk; that is how important human contact is! And on those mornings you know BesthesdaCares is a cad, a heartless, hypocritical SCUMBAG; and the societal mechanism of "HELPING THE HOMELESS" in Bethesda and the rest of TEXAS,is SELF-SERVING!!!; A CHRRRRRRRIST MECHANISM OF SLAUGHTER IN LIFE, SLAUGHTER AS LIFE, so that the rich and shameless can feel good about theme selves and MARVELL AT THE WEIGHT AND SERIOUSNESS OF LIFE AND KNOW THAT OTHERS SUFFER AND THAT LIFE IS A SERIOUS THING BECAUSE OF THIS WEIGHT-AS THEY SLUMBER ON BEFORE GOING TO THE OFFICE UNTIL NEXT FRIDAY ("My money on Friday; every FRIDAY!)

IN OUR TIME
ON THE QUAI AT SMYRNA

The strange thing was, he said, how they screamed every night at midnight. I do not know why they screamed at that time. We were in the harbor and they were all on the pier and at midnight they started screaming. We used to turn the searchlight on them to quiet them. That always did the trick. We’d run the searchlight up and down over them two or three times and they stopped it. One time I was senior officer in the pier and a Turkish officer came up to me in a frightful rage because one of our sailors had been most insulting to him. So I told him the fellow would be sent on ship and be most severely punished. I asked him to point him out. So he pointed out a gunner’s mate, most inoffensive chap. Said he’d been most frightfully and repeatedly insulting; talking to me through an interpreter. I couldn’t imagine how the gunner’s mate knew enough Turkish to be insulting. I called him over and said, “And just in case you should have spoken to any Turkish officers.”
“I haven’t spoken to any of them, sir.”
“I’m quite sure of it,” I said, “but you’d best go on board ship and not come ashore again fort the rest of the day.”
Then I told the Turk the man was being sent on board ship and would be most severely dealt with. Oh most rigorously. He felt topping about it. Great friends we were.
The worst, he said were the women with dead babies. You couldn’t get the women to give up their dead babies. They’d have babies for six days. Wouldn’t give them up. Nothing you could do about it. Had to take them away finally. Then there was an old lady, most extraordinary case. I told it to a doctor and he said I was lying. We were clearing them off the pier, had to clear off the dead ones, and this old woman was lying on a sort of litter. They said, “Will you have a look at her, Sir?” So I had a look at her and just then she died and went absolutely stiff. Her legs drew up and she drew up form the waist and went quite rigid. Exactly as though she had been dead over a night. She was quite dead and absolutely rigid. I told a medical chap about it and he told me it was impossible.
They were all out there on the pier and it wasn’t at all like an earthquake or that sort of thing because they never knew about the Turk. They never knew what the old Turk would do. You remember when they ordered us not to come in to take off any more? I had the wind up when we came in that morning. He had any amount of batteries and could have blown us clean out of the water. We were going to come in, run close along the pier, let go the front and rear anchors and then shell the Turkish quarter of the town. They would have blown us out ot the water but we would have blown the town simply to hell. They just fired a few blank charges at us as we came in. Kemal came down and sacked the Turkish commander. For exceeding his authority or some such thing. He got a bit above himself. It would have been the hell of a mess.
You remember the harbor. There were plenty of nice things floating around in it. That was the only time in my life I got so I dreamed about things. You didn’t mind the women who were having babies as you did those with the dead ones. They had them all right. Surprising how few of them died. You just covered them over with something and let them go to it. They’d always pick out the darkest place in the hold to have them. None of them minded anything once the got off the pier.
The Greeks were nice chaps too. When they evacuated they had all their baggage animals they couldn’t take off with them so they just broke their forelegs and dumped them into the shallow water. All those mules with their forelegs broken pushed over into the shallow water. It was all a pleasant buiness. My word yes a most pleasant business.
HEMINGWAY

SPIKE LEE AND THE INSIDE MAN (2006)
The director went as far as he could in his contemplation of power in the US and the Black Man. And he had to do it through the (black) halo of the Holocaust as the origin of the "seed of evil" in American society; if he had used somebody like a MacNamara, or a similar corporate-type profile, probably a much truer origin (plus the Jodie Foster character-the spitting image of my stepmother-as the soul/alter ego of the white world of power) he would never have got the film made. So, in some ways I see how the Holocaust has been used in Western culture as a moral reference of uniformity: we all understand it and cringe in horror. But still, in a certain sense, it as become a cliche of "evil" (which it certainly was!). But it smacks of a "cultural instrumentalization", as I have also heard mentioned on several occasions. And it would have been a greater ray of hope if Israel had come out, as part of the wave of historical forgiveness, and proclaimed ITS FORGIVENESS of all of humanity, for example, the only ones who could have; but they never did and they just keep on exploiting it in an attempt to permanently draw moral and political force as a way of justifying what ever happens to be their political/cultural goals in any given moment (YOU KNOW WHAT YOU CAN KISS!) In regards to the so-called rise of the far right in the present turmoil of Europe, which the Economist does a piece on about every three years, or so, I regard it as historical/cultural trash that just draws on pre-WWII tension as a semiological tool and as no real social importance at the present point in history. But it makes you feel good to be moral and politically moderate, doesn't it? And that is exactly the purpose.
Enjoy your Happy Meal!

· TRICKS OF FAITH (OR THE PARROT ON THE BACK OF AN ASS)
1. When the world was defined by what could have been, according to certain references in Genesis, a great triangle running from Babalyon to Egypt to a point south towards Ethopia, in which something like the Garden of Eden might have been found, it was said that God had created the world; when the New World was discovered in 1492, lets say, and the Indians-the native inhabitants of those lands where-deemed by religious authorities of Portugal and Spain to also have a soul, it was still understood that “God had created the world”. But by then, of course, the world was understood to be much bigger than was thought to be God’s original creation. And when the Big Bang theory of the origin of the Universe was developed which includes the constant expansion of space, and even, possibly, time itself in the form of successive Universes, expanding and contracting, perhaps even forever, God was again said to still be the Father of Creation. Certainly at this point what was once a vast triangle between North and East Africa up into the Euphrates valley had grown in extension past all imagination itself. But it is quite clear what those of the Faith (any Faith) had done: not having the slightest shred of empirical evidence that in fact God does exist, you just expanded the concept of the divine to better fit what science was telling us about existence-BECAUSE YOU DO BELIEVE IN SCIENCE AS WELL, OR DO YOU NOT?- and in this way you were always one step ahead in your little game. And you will do this for as long as you live, as long as you need to, because as long as there are people on Earth, there will be people of Faith; but when the day comes when there are no longer people on the planet (this is pretty much a standard concept in science) what will happen to God? Now you see what I mean: God is the human projection of a FATHER FIGURE in which your faith is ultimately founded, but that reveals nothing at all in regards to the rational existence of God; in fact, your only real argument is simply YOUR existence itself, the presence of human life on planet Earth. And because you are a rational being, you need an explanation, a source of COMFORT in the form a FATHER who you need to see as always there-somewhere-at times angry, yet firm and warm (in your mind’s vision) who will never leave you alone and abandoned on the wind-swept plain of real existence. In this sense there is no other way to describe your vision of existence but as INFANTIL, a vision of life through the eyes of little boy or girl.
2. I believe in anthropology: Yaweh, Mamapacha, Zeus, a forrest, the sky, a mountain, even Jesus Christ and re-incarnation, are ways of procuring human comfort, relief from the anxiety and fear of the abandon child as he/she sees the world and especially Death, his or her own natural physical demise. My problem is that I am no longer a child, but rather I need to see to the wellbeing of children myself, as a father of a boy and as a teacher, and, in a certain sense, to the wellbeing of people like you who are incapable of taking personal responsibility for their own lives, just like children, which is, as you can ascertain, exactly how I see you. For I, and many people like me, do not identify with your destructive and historically atrocious sense of “passion” or intensity that has moved you to kill and make suffer other human beings, even in regards to practicing Jews and especially to those who ran the state of Israel for last 60 years. I see myself as belonging and owing myself to another human legacy present since the origin of human culture itself-that of the rationally critical individual! And truly, I pity YOU in this sense!
3. Nevertheless and in the mean time, I am the one who needs to see to Humanity’s wellbeing by means of rational thought, through science and the its application towards resolving the world’s plights, which you-BELIEVERS OF ANY KIND-do nothing but horrendously complicate!
4. So let it be known: the time when you historically and effectively held human culture and society in your grip is NOW OVER. The INDIVIDUAL as a subject of his/her own needs will now come to the fore of collective human organization and you will move to the periphery; Religion will be understood as an HISTORICAL HUMAN TRUTH only in that if came from HUMAN NEED; but in no way will it any longer be the subject of rational, empirical contemplation because the only thing rational and empirical about religion (other than its anthropological significance) is YOUR NEED FOR IT! But there are other more wholesome, less destructive ways to answer this need and they begin by the taking of PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY for one’s own life.
In this sense I say: YOU NOW CALL THE SHOTS and YOU have to decide!

FINALLY, I SUGGEST YOU TELL ANYBODY WHO HAS SERIOUS ISSUES WITH ME, TO FILE IN THE MONTGOMERY COUNTY COURT HOUSE, ROCKVILLE, WITH THE COURT CLERK. AND I'LL JUST HAVE TO SEE THEM IN COURT.

(Hope this is helpful for you)

THE UNDERLYING PSYCHOLOGICAL PROBLEM OF MAN
His body. Regarding physical space, only one human body can occupy it at a time. And this ties directly into the individual's need for comfort; bodily and then successively more abstract, on higher levels. And it is clear then, that Man naturally lives-necessarily and always-in conflict with other individuals, ALL THE TIME. You can be polite respectful and wait your turn; or you can also KILL, impose yourself on others as a way of getting what you need and want. This is you baby, in your psychological life-mode and collective human groups-society- is a BITCH in this sense. And when this goes away, people as individuals die (and life is NOT WORTH LIVING-clearly I am talking about a personal problem that I deal with-the value of life itself-YOUR LIFE, AND OUR LIVES). And I have seen the lack of regard for others in all kinds of situations-to the point that if you are polite and "politically correct" in certain circumstances, YOU WILL BE TAKEN DOWN BY OTHERS, BY A PACK OF ENRAGED AND FEARFUL MONKEYS. And I certainly know that there are times when you have no choice BUT TO STOP COLD INDIVIDUALS AND GROUPS ANYWAY YOU CAN FOR THEY WILL TAKE A NICE PLEASANT CRAP (FOR THEM) ON YOU OR ANYTHING THAT IS IMPORTANT TO YOU. And this I know, as contemplation and as personal experience! This is the nature of people. So stop kidding yourself about DEMOCRACY; we have reached a point and circumstances where there should be no consideration for the "petty monkey crap" of callously frivolous individuals and their drive for comfort at all costs! And people need to understand this, intellectualize it, and live accordingly with INTRINSIC RESPECT for others, not respect imposed by the law or social convention.
YOU CAN GO TAKE A CRAP ON YOUR DEAD MOTHER!

HUMOR UNDER THE ROCK OF THE CHRIST MECHANISM
texasloveschildren@yahoo.com
"Dime de lo que presumes y te dire de lo que careces" goes the expression in Spanish, meaning that that which you must state about yourself reflects a very probable insecurity in yourself and hence the need to make sure others see you as not lacking what you very well might, deep in your heart or in some sinisterly subtle manner and that you are aware of (hence your insecurity!)
info@bethesdacares.org
When you have a charity organization coming out of Bethesda (in Montgomery County, MD; one of the wealthiest counties in the US), and it needs to attempt to affirm that it does indeed care, you now understand that in some way it doesn't, or that in the minds of the people who came up with the name, there is a subtle internal insecurity about that very idea, that "we as Bethesdians ACTUALLY DO NOT CARE" and therefore they have to SAY IT, to try to get others to EXTRINSICALLY provide them with what viscerally they KNOW is lacking!
A FEW JOKES ENJOYED BY THE HOMELESS AT info@bethesdacares.org
-"BETHESDADOESN'TCARE"
-"BETHESDADOESN'TCARE after 5pm" [office closes at 5 everyday]
-"on the weekends, BETHESDACARES doesn't give a shit!" [there are no office hours on Saturday and Sundays; no coffee or rolls, no opportunity to be with others for breakfast and for many people, no human contact WHATSOEVER for 64 Earth hours (from 5pm Friday, to 9AM Monday); and imagine 64 hours in January and February -talk to Richard and Dean about that, for example!]
-"BethesdaCares only enough to provide one meal a day; BethesdaCares doesn't care about dinner for you" [Churches in Bethesda form a net work where on different days of the week, different churches provide a lunch (it's big and hot) at 12:30, and sometimes you are given sandwiches to take for dinner. BUT SOME TIMES THERE AREN'T ANY AT ALLLLLLL! And that is when you say:
"BethesdaCares doesn't give a damn!; Fuck BethesdaCares!"
-"BethesdaCares doesn't care until 9AM" [When you live on the street and sleep on the street, or in your car, you are always up at around 4, even if you finally go to sleep at 12AM or 1AM; so you have 5 hours before you without warmth, coffee or anybody to talk to or even to sit with, be with-even if you don't talk; that is how important human contact is! And on those mornings you know BesthesdaCares is a cad, a heartless, hypocritical SCUMBAG; and the societal mechanism of "HELPING THE HOMELESS" in Bethesda and the rest of TEXAS,is SELF-SERVING!!!; A CHRRRRRRRIST MECHANISM OF SLAUGHTER IN LIFE, SLAUGHTER AS LIFE, so that the rich and shameless can feel good about theme selves and MARVELL AT THE WEIGHT AND SERIOUSNESS OF LIFE AND KNOW THAT OTHERS SUFFER AND THAT LIFE IS A SERIOUS THING BECAUSE OF THIS WEIGHT-AS THEY SLUMBER ON BEFORE GOING TO THE OFFICE UNTIL NEXT FRIDAY ("My money on Friday; every FRIDAY!) BECAUSE THEY HAVE TO GO TO THE MALL WITH DEBBIE ON SATURDAY!!!!!

IN OUR TIME
ON THE QUAI AT SMYRNA

The strange thing was, he said, how they screamed every night at midnight. I do not know why they screamed at that time. We were in the harbor and they were all on the pier and at midnight they started screaming. We used to turn the searchlight on them to quiet them. That always did the trick. We’d run the searchlight up and down over them two or three times and they stopped it. One time I was senior officer in the pier and a Turkish officer came up to me in a frightful rage because one of our sailors had been most insulting to him. So I told him the fellow would be sent on ship and be most severely punished. I asked him to point him out. So he pointed out a gunner’s mate, most inoffensive chap. Said he’d been most frightfully and repeatedly insulting; talking to me through an interpreter. I couldn’t imagine how the gunner’s mate knew enough Turkish to be insulting. I called him over and said, “And just in case you should have spoken to any Turkish officers.”
“I haven’t spoken to any of them, sir.”
“I’m quite sure of it,” I said, “but you’d best go on board ship and not come ashore again fort the rest of the day.”
Then I told the Turk the man was being sent on board ship and would be most severely dealt with. Oh most rigorously. He felt topping about it. Great friends we were.
The worst, he said were the women with dead babies. You couldn’t get the women to give up their dead babies. They’d have babies for six days. Wouldn’t give them up. Nothing you could do about it. Had to take them away finally. Then there was an old lady, most extraordinary case. I told it to a doctor and he said I was lying. We were clearing them off the pier, had to clear off the dead ones, and this old woman was lying on a sort of litter. They said, “Will you have a look at her, Sir?” So I had a look at her and just then she died and went absolutely stiff. Her legs drew up and she drew up form the waist and went quite rigid. Exactly as though she had been dead over a night. She was quite dead and absolutely rigid. I told a medical chap about it and he told me it was impossible.
They were all out there on the pier and it wasn’t at all like an earthquake or that sort of thing because they never knew about the Turk. They never knew what the old Turk would do. You remember when they ordered us not to come in to take off any more? I had the wind up when we came in that morning. He had any amount of batteries and could have blown us clean out of the water. We were going to come in, run close along the pier, let go the front and rear anchors and then shell the Turkish quarter of the town. They would have blown us out ot the water but we would have blown the town simply to hell. They just fired a few blank charges at us as we came in. Kemal came down and sacked the Turkish commander. For exceeding his authority or some such thing. He got a bit above himself. It would have been the hell of a mess.
You remember the harbor. There were plenty of nice things floating around in it. That was the only time in my life I got so I dreamed about things. You didn’t mind the women who were having babies as you did those with the dead ones. They had them all right. Surprising how few of them died. You just covered them over with something and let them go to it. They’d always pick out the darkest place in the hold to have them. None of them minded anything once the got off the pier.
The Greeks were nice chaps too. When they evacuated they had all their baggage animals they couldn’t take off with them so they just broke their forelegs and dumped them into the shallow water. All those mules with their forelegs broken pushed over into the shallow water. It was all a pleasant buiness. My word yes a most pleasant business.
HEMINGWAY

SPIKE LEE AND THE INSIDE MAN (2006)
The director went as far as he could in his contemplation of power in the US and the Black Man. And he had to do it through the (black) halo of the Holocaust as the origin of the "seed of evil" in American society; if he had used somebody like a MacNamara, or a similar corporate-type profile, probably a much truer origin (plus the Jodie Foster character-the spitting image of my stepmother-as the soul/alter ego of the white world of power) he would never have got the film made. So, in some ways I see how the Holocaust has been used in Western culture as a moral reference of uniformity: we all understand it and cringe in horror. But still, in a certain sense, it as become a cliche of "evil" (which it certainly was!). But it smacks of a "cultural instrumentalization", as I have also heard mentioned on several occasions.

The INDIVIDUAL as a subject of his/her own needs will now come to the fore of collective human organization and you will move to the periphery; Religion will be understood as an HISTORICAL HUMAN TRUTH only in that if came from HUMAN NEED; but in no way will it any longer be the subject of rational, empirical contemplation because the only thing rational and empirical about religion (other than its anthropological significance) is YOUR NEED FOR IT! But there are other more wholesome, less destructive ways to answer this need and they begin by the taking of PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY for one’s own life.

When you have a charity organization coming out of Bethesda (in Montgomery County, MD; one of the wealthiest counties in the US), and it needs to attempt to affirm that it does indeed care, you now understand that in some way it doesn't, or that in the minds of the people who came up with the name, there is a subtle internal insecurity about that very idea, that "we as Bethesdians ACTUALLY DO NOT CARE" and therefore they have to SAY IT, to try to get others to EXTRINSICALLY provide them with what viscerally they KNOW is lacking!
A FEW JOKES ENJOYED BY THE HOMELESS AT info@bethesdacares.org
-"BETHESDADOESN'TCARE"
-"BETHESDADOESN'TCARE after 5pm" [office closes at 5 everyday]
-"on the weekends, BETHESDACARES doesn't give a shit!" [there are no office hours on Saturday and Sundays; no coffee or rolls, no opportunity to be with others for breakfast and for many people, no human contact WHATSOEVER for 64 Earth hours (from 5pm Friday, to 9AM Monday); and imagine 64 hours in January and February -talk to Richard and Dean about that, for example!]
-"BethesdaCares only enough to provide one meal a day; BethesdaCares doesn't care about dinner for you" [Churches in Bethesda form a net work where on different days of the week, different churches provide a lunch (it's big and hot) at 12:30, and sometimes you are given sandwiches to take for dinner. BUT SOME TIMES THERE AREN'T ANY AT ALLLLLLL! And that is when you say:
"BethesdaCares doesn't give a damn!; Fuck BethesdaCares!"
-"BethesdaCares doesn't care until 9AM" [When you live on the street and sleep on the street, or in your car, you are always up at around 4, even if you finally go to sleep at 12AM or 1AM; so you have 5 hours before you without warmth, coffee or anybody to talk to or even to sit with, be with-even if you don't talk; that is how important human contact is! And on those mornings you know BesthesdaCares is a cad, a heartless, hypocritical SCUMBAG; and the societal mechanism of "HELPING THE HOMELESS" in Bethesda and the rest of TEXAS,is SELF-SERVING!!!; A CHRRRRRRRIST MECHANISM OF SLAUGHTER IN LIFE, SLAUGHTER AS LIFE, so that the rich and shameless can feel good about theme selves and MARVELL AT THE WEIGHT AND SERIOUSNESS OF LIFE AND KNOW THAT OTHERS SUFFER AND THAT LIFE IS A SERIOUS THING BECAUSE OF THIS WEIGHT-AS THEY SLUMBER ON BEFORE GOING TO THE OFFICE UNTIL NEXT FRIDAY ("My money on Friday; every FRIDAY!) BECAUSE THEY HAVE TO GO TO THE MALL WITH DEBBIE ON SATURDAY!!!!!

IN OUR TIME
ON THE QUAI AT SMYRNA


The strange thing was, he said, how they screamed every night at midnight. I do not know why they screamed at that time. We were in the harbor and they were all on the pier and at midnight they started screaming. We used to turn the searchlight on them to quiet them. That always did the trick. We’d run the searchlight up and down over them two or three times and they stopped it. One time I was senior officer in the pier and a Turkish officer came up to me in a frightful rage because one of our sailors had been most insulting to him. So I told him the fellow would be sent on ship and be most severely punished. I asked him to point him out. So he pointed out a gunner’s mate, most inoffensive chap. Said he’d been most frightfully and repeatedly insulting; talking to me through an interpreter. I couldn’t imagine how the gunner’s mate knew enough Turkish to be insulting. I called him over and said, “And just in case you should have spoken to any Turkish officers.”
“I haven’t spoken to any of them, sir.”
“I’m quite sure of it,” I said, “but you’d best go on board ship and not come ashore again fort the rest of the day.”
Then I told the Turk the man was being sent on board ship and would be most severely dealt with. Oh most rigorously. He felt topping about it. Great friends we were.
The worst, he said were the women with dead babies. You couldn’t get the women to give up their dead babies. They’d have babies for six days. Wouldn’t give them up. Nothing you could do about it. Had to take them away finally. Then there was an old lady, most extraordinary case. I told it to a doctor and he said I was lying. We were clearing them off the pier, had to clear off the dead ones, and this old woman was lying on a sort of litter. They said, “Will you have a look at her, Sir?” So I had a look at her and just then she died and went absolutely stiff. Her legs drew up and she drew up form the waist and went quite rigid. Exactly as though she had been dead over a night. She was quite dead and absolutely rigid. I told a medical chap about it and he told me it was impossible.
They were all out there on the pier and it wasn’t at all like an earthquake or that sort of thing because they never knew about the Turk. They never knew what the old Turk would do. You remember when they ordered us not to come in to take off any more? I had the wind up when we came in that morning. He had any amount of batteries and could have blown us clean out of the water. We were going to come in, run close along the pier, let go the front and rear anchors and then shell the Turkish quarter of the town. They would have blown us out ot the water but we would have blown the town simply to hell. They just fired a few blank charges at us as we came in. Kemal came down and sacked the Turkish commander. For exceeding his authority or some such thing. He got a bit above himself. It would have been the hell of a mess.
You remember the harbor. There were plenty of nice things floating around in it. That was the only time in my life I got so I dreamed about things. You didn’t mind the women who were having babies as you did those with the dead ones. They had them all right. Surprising how few of them died. You just covered them over with something and let them go to it. They’d always pick out the darkest place in the hold to have them. None of them minded anything once the got off the pier.
The Greeks were nice chaps too. When they evacuated they had all their baggage animals they couldn’t take off with them so they just broke their forelegs and dumped them into the shallow water. All those mules with their forelegs broken pushed over into the shallow water. It was all a pleasant buiness. My word yes a most pleasant business.

SPIKE LEE AND THE INSIDE MAN (2006)
The director went as far as he could in his contemplation of power in the US and the Black Man. And he had to do it through the (black) halo of the Holocaust as the origin of the "seed of evil" in American society; if he had used somebody like a MacNamara, or a similar corporate-type profile, probably a much truer origin (plus the Jodie Foster character-the spitting image of my stepmother-as the soul/alter ego of the white world of power) he would never have got the film made. So, in some ways I see how the Holocaust has been used in Western culture as a moral reference of uniformity: we all understand it and cringe in horror. But still, in a certain sense, it as become a cliche of "evil" (which it certainly was!). But it smacks of a "cultural instrumentalization", as I have also heard mentioned on several occasions. And it would have been a greater ray of hope if Israel had come out, as part of the wave of historical forgiveness, and proclaimed ITS FORGIVENESS of all of humanity, for example, the only ones who could have; but they never did and they just keep on exploiting it in an attempt to permanently draw moral and political force as a way of justifying what ever happens to be their political/cultural goals in any given moment (YOU KNOW WHAT YOU CAN KISS!) In regards to the so-called rise of the far right in the present turmoil of Europe, which the Economist does a piece on about every three years, or so, I regard it as historical/cultural trash that just draws on pre-WWII tension as a semiological tool and as no real social importance at the present point in history. But it makes you feel good to be moral and politically moderate, doesn't it? And that is exactly the purpose.
Enjoy your Happy Meal!

· TRICKS OF FAITH (OR THE PARROT ON THE BACK OF AN ASS)
1. When the world was defined by what could have been, according to certain references in Genesis, a great triangle running from Babalyon to Egypt to a point south towards Ethopia, in which something like the Garden of Eden might have been found, it was said that God had created the world; when the New World was discovered in 1492, lets say, and the Indians-the native inhabitants of those lands where-deemed by religious authorities of Portugal and Spain to also have a soul, it was still understood that “God had created the world”. But by then, of course, the world was understood to be much bigger than was thought to be God’s original creation. And when the Big Bang theory of the origin of the Universe was developed which includes the constant expansion of space, and even, possibly, time itself in the form of successive Universes, expanding and contracting, perhaps even forever, God was again said to still be the Father of Creation. Certainly at this point what was once a vast triangle between North and East Africa up into the Euphrates valley had grown in extension past all imagination itself. But it is quite clear what those of the Faith (any Faith) had done: not having the slightest shred of empirical evidence that in fact God does exist, you just expanded the concept of the divine to better fit what science was telling us about existence-BECAUSE YOU DO BELIEVE IN SCIENCE AS WELL, OR DO YOU NOT?- and in this way you were always one step ahead in your little game. And you will do this for as long as you live, as long as you need to, because as long as there are people on Earth, there will be people of Faith; but when the day comes when there are no longer people on the planet (this is pretty much a standard concept in science) what will happen to God? Now you see what I mean: God is the human projection of a FATHER FIGURE in which your faith is ultimately founded, but that reveals nothing at all in regards to the rational existence of God; in fact, your only real argument is simply YOUR existence itself, the presence of human life on planet Earth. And because you are a rational being, you need an explanation, a source of COMFORT in the form a FATHER who you need to see as always there-somewhere-at times angry, yet firm and warm (in your mind’s vision) who will never leave you alone and abandoned on the wind-swept plain of real existence. In this sense there is no other way to describe your vision of existence but as INFANTIL, a vision of life through the eyes of little boy or girl.
2. I believe in anthropology: Yaweh, Mamapacha, Zeus, a forrest, the sky, a mountain, even Jesus Christ and re-incarnation, are ways of procuring human comfort, relief from the anxiety and fear of the abandon child as he/she sees the world and especially Death, his or her own natural physical demise. My problem is that I am no longer a child, but rather I need to see to the wellbeing of children myself, as a father of a boy and as a teacher, and, in a certain sense, to the wellbeing of people like you who are incapable of taking personal responsibility for their own lives, just like children, which is, as you can ascertain, exactly how I see you. For I, and many people like me, do not identify with your destructive and historically atrocious sense of “passion” or intensity that has moved you to kill and make suffer other human beings, even in regards to practicing Jews and especially to those who ran the state of Israel for last 60 years. I see myself as belonging and owing myself to another human legacy present since the origin of human culture itself-that of the rationally critical individual! And truly, I pity YOU in this sense!
3. Nevertheless and in the mean time, I am the one who needs to see to Humanity’s wellbeing by means of rational thought, through science and the its application towards resolving the world’s plights, which you-BELIEVERS OF ANY KIND-do nothing but horrendously complicate!
4. So let it be known: the time when you historically and effectively held human culture and society in your grip is NOW OVER. The INDIVIDUAL as a subject of his/her own needs will now come to the fore of collective human organization and you will move to the periphery; Religion will be understood as an HISTORICAL HUMAN TRUTH only in that if came from HUMAN NEED; but in no way will it any longer be the subject of rational, empirical contemplation because the only thing rational and empirical about religion (other than its anthropological significance) is YOUR NEED FOR IT! But there are other more wholesome, less destructive ways to answer this need and they begin by the taking of PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY for one’s own life.
In this sense I say: YOU NOW CALL THE SHOTS and YOU have to decide!

Thoroughbred conspiracy theory
By Hunter S. Thompson
Page 2 columnist
[from ESPN; NOT SURE OF THE EXACT DATE]
We were just settling in for a frenzy of high-dollar horse-racing on Saturday, when the Sheriff was called away by news of a massive jailbreak in downtown Aspen. At least two dangerous Rapists had slithered out of Jail and were said to be heading our way. It was hideous news, but we paid no attention to it and continued to gamble feverishly….
The Belmont was about to start, and a great roar of applause went up as Funny Cide appeared. He was the home-town hero, heavily favored to win easily. After winning the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness, he had become a national hero from coast to coast.
Funny Cide was "the people's favorite," they said. He represented "the little guy, the beer-drunk brute from Brooklyn who might run amok and kill his own children, if Funny Cide lost" -- which seemed to be almost impossible. In New York City, they seriously believed he was a Sure Thing.

The villain of this Triple Crown story was thoroughbred the "racing establishment," the mint julep, pink lemonade crowd that had ruled the sport from the beginning of time. Known in the business as the dreaded Kentucky Mafia of horse breeders & trainers & money barons, who hated the sight of Funny Cide and "would do almost anything" to keep him from winning this race.
Rumors said they were Desperate -- and the weapon they chose on this muddy Saturday morning was a finely bred 3-year-colt named Empire Maker. He was the real thing.

The Belmont is always a big race, but this year was gigantic. If Funny Cide won, he would pick up an additional $5,000,000 bonus from Visa for winning racing's Triple Crown, meaning he would have won more than $7,000,000 this year alone. Funny Cide was on the brink of Immortality.

But not everybody saw it that way, including me. In my heart I was for the darling of New York, but my brain was telling me to bet on Empire Maker. He was a creature of the huge and sinister blue-blood racing establishment. I knew these people; I grew up with them, and I know they are capable of Anything.

Thoroughbred horses are extremely delicate animals. At three years old, they are like pimply teenagers just getting into the business. They are flaky and temperamental and bitchy, just like us, and most of them are flat-out useless. If they break a leg, which is common, you will have to execute them, right there on the spot. Put a bullet through their brains and haul them away to a glue factory and keep a stiff upper lip.
That is how it works in the horse-racing business life. It is a profoundly Darwinian world, where there are many losers and few winners.

Betting the Belmont was a classic example of the "heart vs. head" syndrome that I have struggled with all my life. Funny Cide was the heavy favorite to win the Belmont, a modern-day Native Dance and Secretariat in the hearts and minds of the media and desperate New York racing fans, a solid 4-5 and falling. Funny Cide was America's horse.

Nevertheless, he got run down at the top of the stretch by Empire Maker and was never heard from again. He faded to a well-beaten third, and so did that $5,000,000 bonus from Visa. When in doubt, bet the dark side. It is the nature of this business we have chosen.

Dr. Hunter S. Thompson was born and raised in Louisville, Ky. His books include "Hell's Angels," "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas," "Fear and Loathing: On the Campaign Trail '72," "The Great Shark Hunt," "The Curse of Lono," "Generation of Swine," "Songs of the Doomed," "Screwjack," "Better Than Sex," "The Proud Highway," "The Rum Diary," and "Fear and Loathing in America." His latest book, "Kingdom of Fear," has just been released. A regular contributor to various national and international publications, Thompson now lives in a fortified compound near Aspen, Colo. His column, "Hey, Rube," appears regularly on Page 2.

But you probably could already feel this in your past life; and I man not talking about sex (you know that!); but also I am, OF COURSE!
HAVE FUN!
-And one last thing: I DON'T USE DRUGS (although I have); just alcohol, and especially beer. But my son does, for example. You are just gong to have to figure that out, just like he is. YOU HAVE TO KNOW WHAT YOU ARE ABOUT!
REGARDING HUNTER S. THOMPSON
He is certainly my man, Oh yes! (Very important writer for me in many ways!)
About his suicide, we'll go into that another day. It happens and it is SEEN AS AN OPTION; but really, in most cases, its not-just the act of somebody who cannot take any longer being unhappy.
But I love the guy, just like a lot of people!

ONE BIG INFERENCE (LIKE A SORE THUMB!)
Social life and cohesion depends now on learning,the VICERERAL/INTELLECTUALIZATION of your viceral-intellectuality. No longer is it appropriate-in fact it will be seen as was it is, VIOLENCE-for people of power to TALK DOWN to individuals; but rather, they must, from levels of power, elevate people intellectually. But people of power MUST BE ELEVATED THEMSELVES in order to bring up others. AND YOU KNOW-WE ALL KNOW-THAT GENERALLY SPEAKING AND ESPECIALLY IN THE UNITES STATES, THE IS NOOOOT THE CASE!
And it truly sucks, big time!
The motor in American politics and power itself, and to some extent, in DEMOCRACY ITSELF, is the intellectual subordination of people that transforms the greater parts of political debate, into A KINDERGARDEN HAIR-PULLING FIGHT, because EVERYTHING in politics is EMOTIONALLY CHARGED, not something based on rational contemplation, and it is therefore exposed to the whims of the POWER GAME, of mans soul level wrath and fierce drive to impose himself AS A SOURCE OF COMFORT, AS SELF AFFIRMATION-AS LIFE ITSELF-BEING FOR PEOPLE.
This, of course, will no longer be ACCEPTABLE. And the first thing that is going to be got rid of, is the vison of voters as EXPLOITABLE THROUGH THEIR EMOTIONS.
AND THIS WILL CHANGE-YOUUUUU WILL CHANGE IT!
(So help me God (that's a joke!))
